the trip, president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu worked to e project a unified front on issues like syria, like the israeli/palestinian peace agreement as well. mr. obama's first journey to israel as president, first foreign trip in his second term started with a warm greeting wednesday. meanwhile, in ramallah thursday, the president criticized israeli settlement activity on the west bank and then a news conference with palestinian president, mahmoud abbas, president obama urged the palestinians to renew the peace talks n a televised address the president did his best to appeal to youngsomes to change the ways of the past and work toward creating an independent and viable palestine. i want to bring in nbc's martin fletcher in tel aviv from ramallah on the west bank. diane know bhutto, negotiator for the palestinian lib rainian organization. mark reg give, chief spokesman for prime minister benjamin netanyahu and in washington, ambassador dennis ross, former middle east envoy for president obama. good to see all of you. thanks so much for being here with us. mark, i wa

east including meeting with benjamin netanyahu. he urged iraqi leaders to overcome sectarian that threatens the stability. let's go to kristen welker. what is the president saying about the trip to the middle east? how are they characterizing this trip? >> reporter: hi, alex. officials believe he set out to do. he also reaffirmed the united states' commitment to the israeli people. the israeli people were skeptical about that prior to the trip. and then there was an unexpected diplomatic victory where president obama, through arm twisting, convinced netanyahu to call turkey and apologize for a deadly raid against a turkish ship. that will be key in moving forward with issues like syria and tries to reopen the peace process in the middle east. so i think white house officials are feeling good about the trip. the big question, if you talk to experts in the region, is what is president obama going to do now to try to restart peace talks? of course, secretary of state kerry is really taking the lead on that. to what extent will president obama engage in that and get involved? tha

was israel to meet with benjamin netanyahu. then to the west bank to build on relations and then in jordan's capital. the u.s. reaffirmed alliances with the king. so overall, how significant is all of this? let's bring in george mitchell. he was appointed by president obama in 2009 as special envoy for the middle east peace. thanks for joining us, mr. mitchell. good to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> first off, how significant was this trip overall? >> i think both significant and successful. the president had several objectives. he wanted to visit israel itself, an important step. connect and make his case directly with the people of israel, which i think he did very well. second, to try to make the case publically and privately to both israeli and palestinian leaders that it is in their self-interest to sit down and negotiate a peace agreement between them. it's not a gift from one side to the other. it's in the self-interest of both israel to get security for its people. the palestinians to finally get a state of their own. he also reaffirmed the strong friendship and support with

benjamin netanyahu there, that they reportedly have an icy relationship, but perhaps this will help mend some fences between those two. it has been said that the president is not there to try to forward the peace process officially, but he is just making basically an appearance there and talking directly to the israeli people. >> steve: the problem for the president right now is the israeli people for the most part don't trust him because they don't trust him to take care of iran, which wants to blow up the jewish state. >> brian: right. but also you have to look at netanyahu who is having trouble of his on. he just put together a government this week, last week. they wanted to get that done before he got here and they got to talk number one about iran, number two about iran. and i think syria has to come up and i think they have to be worried about hezbollah to their right. >> alisyn: they need each other. the president, president obama and benjamin netanyahu need each other. we need to have a good relationship between these two countries. netanyahu famously was close to mitt romney. th
exactly with benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister here, this is what you need to demand as a population. it was meant as a way to counter feelings in israel that perhaps president obama is anti-israeli. analysts say he accomplished that feat of being able to sway public opinion here by this massive charm offensive which was very well choreographed. today a little bit more of the ceremonial types of things. laying a wreath at mount hertzel ceremony where famous leaders are buried. he visited the holocaust memorial and then he has lunch with prime minister netanyahu. this is their third or fourth one on one meeting of this trip as they try to get down to the nitty-gritty issues. obviously the israelis want to talk most about iran, iran, iran and president obama wants to talk a little bit about the palestinians. that is where he's headed next, over to bethlehem to try to talk to them. however, the charm offensive he had over there, the warm and fuzzy feelings he's getting in israel hasn't worked so far with the palestinians. >>brian: was there any backlash of the president talking beyond t
and talk. now yesterday at the press conference with benjamin netanyahu, the issue of the middle east peace process and the president's strug elgles ins first term to get it launched as he wanted to do in that first year of his presidency, he discussed that and he admitted that he's learned from some mistakes. >> i am absolutely sure that there are a host of things that i could have done that would have been more deft and would have created better optics. but ultimately this is a really hard problem. >> reporter: now, they also discussed, netanyahu and obama, the issue of iran and syria. yesterday the theme of the day was red line. so on iran, the big news is that prime minister netanyahu and president obama agree that iran is at least a year away. netanyahu agrees with the u.s. intelligence timeline on that issue. but it sounds like netanyahu got what he wanted to hear out of the president, which is making sure nothing was being taken off the table. take a listen. >> i think that there's a misunderstanding about time. if iran decides to go for a nuclear weapon, that is to actually manufact
but it is with the people on the ground there. with benjamin netanyahu and the people of the palestinians. and they've not known in their reactions with each other any ability to proceed. the president didn't go there with a new plan. all he is saying is get back to the table. it is not a very strong message. a realistic message given the situation. >> as we reported off the top, the reaction to president obama's visit has been a mostly positive one there. this is what the "jerusalem post" had to say this morning. living in a neighborhood, and even in a world in which there are those who have not exactly accepted our right to legitimacy to be here, having the most powerful man in the world come and give us a public bear hug is very important. one cannot help but ask, how much frustration, aggravation and anger. what had been prevented in both israel and the united states had obama made this trip and adopted this approach at the beginning of his presidency. why could you think do have we think he did not reach out this way sooner? >> he is there. he did go there. he went before he was president. thi
